Binos boss Stuart McLaren was pleased with the performance of his side despite the 1-0 defeat to Elgin City at Borough Briggs on Saturday.
Kyle Macleod, on loan from Ross County, scored the only goal of the game after 12 minutes and, despite enjoying the bulk of possession, we failed to carve out an equaliser.
McLaren said: “We changed the formation to go to three at the back and we also got Sean Dickson and Sandy Cunningham closer to Steven Doris as an attacking three.
“I couldn’t have asked any more of the players and they deserved to take something from the game. To be fair to Elgin, they got men behind the ball in the second half and were difficult to break down.
“We know we need to score more goals and, with Craig Beattie certainly out for the next few weeks, we will be looking to bring someone in on loan this week.”
Elgin City assistant manager Gavin Price said: “Stirling Albion will feel pretty aggrieved not to get anything from the game. They played some good stuff and are certainly in a false position.
“Our goalkeeper and back four were excellent and we limited Stirling to very few chances, despite them having the bulk of the play.”
